THE SOCIAL PROGRESS INDEX (SPI)
The Social Progress Index (SPI) was developed as a direct measure of social and environmental outcomes, and, independently, of economic proxies to provide a complete account of societies’ real quality of life.
The report represents a significant milestone for the global movement to accelerate social progress in the provinces of South Africa. It’s proven to be an invaluable tool for decision-making as it looks to develop smarter investments and more responsive policies rooted in the data.
Furthermore, the SPI complements existing indicators of progress like GDP, helping to untangle the relationship between social progress and economic growth.
